We unpacked our Maker Faire kit, scanned in business cards, and started editing the video. There will probably be one epic “how-to participate in a Maker Faire” video with tips, project interviews, and a behind the scenes look at the pre- and post- parties.
We’ve been playing with the Part Ninja for a while now, and noticed some hardware bugs that managed to get through the first two revisions. One is the battery power supply control transistor(T5) that was incorrectly positioned in the schematic, and the other is a slight pin naming correction.
The firmware for Part Ninja is one step closer to finalization. We added functions that print out the pinouts and part specific values. We fixed a lot of small bugs, and debugged the JFET recognition function which didn’t work.
Maker Faire HOW-TO video will be up tomorrow, and a bunch of project interviews will be online Friday.
